the president can take without having to wait for any congressional action. let's bring in our cnn white house correspondent brianna keilar. she's working the story for us. what are you hearing? >> reporter: wolf, i'm told that there is very much a sense in this meeting between vice president joe biden and advocates of gun control as well as those who have suffered gun violence themselves or lost loved ones to it that there was actually very much a sense that this was an opportunity to do something and they believe they have a bit of, i guess you could say, a mandate to do something because of poll numbers showing the public opinion has shifted in this. the news that the vice president made today was that the white house is looking to go it alone, at least in some ways as it chooses to tackle this problem. go it alone without congress' help and observers of this debate, as you know, have said that this is definitely a possibility but biden today confirmed that it's something the white house is pursing. here's what he said. >> i want to make it clear that we are not going to get caught up in th

a strong column on cnn.com. >> thank you. >> we have stacked the deck against ourselves even when we create a fiscal cliff as a way to force real, meaningful action, we choose to fail because in an odd way, failure is much easier to explain. just blame the other guy. success, on the other hand, comes with responsibility and no one wants that. so where do we end up going from here? >> well, that's the problem. we all want someone to blame, which is what we're doing here. and so republicans, you can blame them for their intrans ji dense on taxes, um blame the democrats for not doing any entitlement reform deduction. i believe you can blame the president for playing small ball when he should be playing a larger game there and maybe he will down the road. but if you actually succeed and were to do a big package and were to do tax reform, as people say they want to do, then you'd have to take responsibility for that. then you'd have to go home to the voters and say, i made the tough decisions. you might not like them but please vote for me again and members of congress are sort of afraid to do t
